I am originally from the UK and am currently working as a Research Fellow in Philosophy at the University of Alberta. Before that I worked as a Research Fellow in the Neurophilosophy laboratory at McGill University (Departments of Psychiatry and Philosophy). I have published my research in peer-reviewed journals and presented at conferences around the world. I have a PhD, MA (distinction), and BA (first class honours) in philosophy.
For the last seven years, I have taught classes in philosophy at McGill University and the University of Alberta. I have taught philosophy of psychology, philosophy of mind, existentialism, ethics, feminist philosophy, and logic.
I have also taught in the Humanities Department at Vanier College (pre-university program and continuing and adult education). Before, that I taught in sixth form in the UK (16-18 years).

I work to make sure my students have a thorough understanding of the material through a variety of different learning techniques: short written responses; question and answer sessions; creating new examples to explore difficult concepts. It is important to me to understand the different obstacles to understanding faced by different students and to work through those together. Having graded many essays at university and college level, I have a clear idea of what teachers and professors and looking for, and how students can improve the clarity and quality of their written work.

I had a good experience and strongly recommend her.
I would recommend her to anyone looking to improve their academic writing.
Not only did she take the time to help me with whatever I needed to work on, but I really did see an improvement in my writing skills. I would definitely recommend to anyone needed a little help with their writing skills!!
